Autumn Inspiration: Whoolio

Autumn Inspiration: Whoolio

Hi Friends!

Fall is my favorite time of year and I’m always so inspired to create!  Meet Whoolio!  He’s an adorable baby owl taking flight for the first time and was sketched by one of the Make Shoppe artists.  No one can resist the cuteness of a baby animal…maybe that’s why I’m hooked on watching “too cute,” or browsing that site called “zoo borns!”
Soon we’ll be expanding this card line with more cute faced creations.  We’re constantly looking for inspiration so give us some ideas of what you’d like to see next!

More Whoolio!

 

From me to you…

Hand-Crafted Fairy Dolls

Hand-Crafted Fairy Dolls

Hi all!

I’m really excited about sharing my latest obsession with you! These fairy dolls are so fun to make and as you can see are just absolutely too cute. I was shown a similar technique by a friend and although it worked well for her…I just couldn’t quite get it as nice and balanced as she did. Then again, she’s been doing her dolls a lot longer than I have so she’s developed a skilled hand.

So this project although really fun, takes patience and quite a few components.  I headed down to the craft store and got all the items needed which include: a variety of wooden doll parts, paints, glitter, glue gun, glue sticks, moss, wire, and florals for the doll skirts. Skipping right over the boring stuff…my absolute favorite part of this project was picking out the various floral and leaf accents for the doll’s skirt. There are so many different flowers to use and colors to choose from!  For my first project I had some home decor potpourri balls lying around so I decided to make little Island dolls. I named my girls “Maui,” and “Lahina,”…i know…so appropriate! For my 3rd doll I decided to do a floral skirt made from synthetic autumn colored leaves. For obvious reasons…I really love this look the best! Meet “Fiona,” she’s my fall fairy doll.

For my next project, I’ll be making some Christmas and New Years themed fairies so make sure to visit me again soon!

Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to visit me on Etsy!

Fall Inspired Cake and Dessert Toppers

Fall Inspired Cake and Dessert Toppers

Hey All!

So I was browsing around online trying to find get inspired to do some more crafts. I’ve made plenty of cards, scrapbooks and other crafty things but just needed something different this time to fill my curiosity.

Taking on elaborate and difficult projects are really fun but alot of the time to have to own all the equipment. That get’s pricey! I came across some pictures of crafty dessert and cake topper decor and thought i’d be nice to make some of my own. And now with Fall right around the corner I thought I should get a head start.
These Fall Inspired Dessert Toppers were very easy and more importantly…I had all the stuff. The designs and possibilities are endless so I highly encourage everyone to try this. Super fun!

Here are some helpful items you’ll need:

Circular Craft Punch
Fall Tree Craft Punch
Wilton Cookie or Lollipop Sticks
Double-Sided Craft Tape
An Assortment of Fall colored card stock
Optional Ribbon

The assembly is pretty self explanatory but I’d love to hear from you if you have any comments or questions! Oh! And don’t forget you can find me (and these) on Etsy
